NFL Game Summary - Atlanta at Baltimore



(Thursday, August 15th)

Final Score: Baltimore 27, Atlanta 23

Baltimore, MD (Sports Network) - The Baltimore Ravens rallied to score 20 points in the fourth quarter, capped with a 78-yard punt return by Asa Jackson, and they defeated the Atlanta Falcons, 27-23, on Thursday.

Tyrod Taylor went 5-for-9 for 83 yards with a pair of touchdowns and an interception while Joe Flacco was 7-for-9 for 118 yards with one touchdown and one interception for the Ravens, who won their preseason opener against the Buccaneers last week, 44-16.

Torrey Smith had two catches for a game-high 85 yards and a touchdown. Aaron Mellette and Tandon Doss each had one reception, but both of their catches resulted in a touchdown.

Matt Ryan went 8-for-15 for 97 yards and a touchdown over four series while Dominique Davis was 8-of-10 for 98 yards and Sean Renfree was 8-for-16 for 63 yards for the Falcons.

Julio Jones had three receptions for 55 yards and a touchdown. Jacquizz Rodgers got the bulk of the carries, rushing 10 times for 28 yards and a touchdown in the setback.

The Ravens were down 23-7 entering the fourth quarter, but scored on their first drive. Taylor threw to Mellette deep down the middle for a 40-yard score. They attempted to go for two, but Taylor's pass to LaQuan Williams was incomplete.

They followed that up on their next possession with a 10-play, 68-yard drive that ended with Taylor hitting Doss with a 5-yard touchdown pass.

On the Falcons' following drive, they went just seven yards before punting the ball from their own 27-yard line. Jackson returned the ball from the Ravens' 22-yard line and scored to put them on top with 6:18 remaining in regulation.

Bryant got the Falcons on the board first with a 45-yard field goal in the first quarter.

Sixteen seconds later, Flacco threw a 77-yard touchdown pass to Smith to give the Ravens a 7-3 lead.

The Falcons answered back on the following drive. With less than three minutes left, Jones caught an 8-yard score from Davis.

Atlanta scored 10 more points in the second quarter. Shelley booted a 42-yard field goal. Two plays into Baltimore's ensuing possesion, Flacco threw an interception to Asante Samuel, who reached the 2-yard line before being tackled by Visante Shiancoe and fumbled the ball. The Falcons' Peria Jerry recovered it and on the next play, Rodgers ran up the middle for the touchdown.

Shelley made another field goal from 29 yards out midway through the third, while Baltimore failed to score and recorded just 62 yards in the period.
